According to various news reports, one of my favorite t.v. actors, Peter Falk, passed away yesterday at his California home. According to reports, Falk, 83, had suffered from dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Although he also was a star of screen and stage, Falk will always be best known for his incredible portrayal of "Columbo," the rumpled, one-eyed police detective. The popular detective television series lasted from 1971-1978; however, Falk also appeared in numerous t.v. specials as Columbo through 2003. Did you know that the talented actor was also an accomplished artist?
As Detective Columbo would conclude, "Just one more thing." Like many celebrities, Mr. Falk also experienced a divorce, back in 1976. But that's enough about that topic, here, today. Today, I primarily want to just salute the outstanding work and the life of a talented actor.
